Uncommon Courtesies

In the last Roderick on the Line, John says that he always gets a houseguest a glass of water, before they ask - because 9 times out of 10, someone always loves a glass of water. I love this idea. What are some low-key courtesies you extend or have had extended to you by friends, romantic partners, suitors, etc. that show someone you're thinking about their needs and general comfort?

he really likes you, tubby!

Do I tell my partner his friend said something snarky? The brief: I have a fantastic bf who is everything I could ask for in a man. He's got a large circle which includes several female friends. One of them, he mentioned before I met her, is known for being funny, but generally inappropriate and uncouth (he gives pretty fair descriptions like this of everyone I've met, not singling her out). Met her a few times, and most recently she was very, very drunk. Can you guess where this is going? [more inside]

How do I stop judging them?

When my friends allow men to treat them poorly, I begin to lose respect for them. On an intellectual level, I know that it’s heartless and unkind of me to look down on my friends who are struggling, it’s victim-blaming, and I HATE that I feel this way. How can I stop it? [more inside]

I need an app to help me build a stronger network.

Looking for a network building/maintaining tool. Is there some sort of app (mac or web based) that will allow me to track how long it has been since talking to someone? Ideally I'd like to see one page with a horizontal bar graph with the number of days since last contact on the x-axis. So as the time between talking grows, the bar expands outwards. [more inside]

Selling $3m violins for a friend...questions on the topic..

A friend of mine is looking to sell two extraordinarily valuable violins (in the 3+ million dollar range). I think he's hoping to sell it privately to avoid the huge cut the auction houses take, and he's suggested that if I can find him a buyer, he'd be happy to pay a finder's fee of some sort. So two questions... [more inside]

But they know so much about Wine and Chocolates!

In a few days I will be staying with friend's family in western France, at a house they own. I will be in the UK the next few days. Normally I would bring wine or chocolates as a thank you for the accommodation, but France does these much better and cheaper than the UK (I am told). I am Canadian. What could I bring that would still be a great gift, that I could find in London? It should be something like food or drink, and something of benefit to people on vacation. Price about $50. The friends I am visiting are French/Canadian and appreciate quality/luxury
